If you enjoy going to concerts, festivals, or anywhere else with loud music, it's important to protect your ears. Exposure to loud music can cause a range of potential problems, from tinnitus and headaches through to long-term hearing loss. Earjobs specialises in concert ear plugs for maximum protection with minimal impact on the listening experience.
Tinnitus is a pervasive problem faced by people around the world. While tinnitus is not only experienced by music lovers, exposure to regular loud music can cause tinnitus. Defined as a physical symptom, tinnitus is experienced by an estimated 1 in 6 kiwis..
Most people describe tinnitus as ringing in the ears, although it can also be experienced as whistling, buzzing, hissing, humming, or roaring. Tinnitus is most often experienced in one ear, although it can be experienced in both. While some people have chronic tinnitus that lasts for years, it is often intermittent on a short-term or long-term basis.
Concerts and festivals can be very loud, with even a few minutes of exposure possibly causing tinnitus and other hearing damage. The average concert is between 110 dB and 120 dB, which is much higher than the safe limits advised to avoid hearing problems. Wearing concert ear plugs from Earjobs is the best way to protect your ears and enjoy the music you love at the same time.
